It is a real period film and through the frustrations and growth of a young man who aims at becoming a samurai, the film focuses on "samurai spirit", a universal subject in Japanese people's lives which is about how difficult and commendable it is to achieve perfection.
The scriptwriter and director Yoshinari Nishikori talked about his ideas of this movie: "I want to make an entertainment film that can make Japanese people feel proud and surprise the world again. That's what I want to pass to the younger generation through a new sensation."
